Peace Action

Working to prevent violent conflict and build lasting peace in Somalia and Somaliland, South Sudan, Sudan, and Syria

Conflict Dynamics’ programs in Somalia and Somaliland, South Sudan, Sudan, and Syria directly and impartially support local actors to develop their own options for effective political dialogue processes and governance arrangements that accommodate a wide range of diverse interests.


The work draws on the Political Accommodation approach. In addition to its context foci, the Peacebuilding Team works on thematic issues related to peacemaking and peacebuilding. This includes innovative work on Gender Equity, Political and Economic Cooperation as an avenue to peace, and Islam and Political Accommodation.
